      Sounds delicious - but I think my jaw dropped at the amount of sugar!!!!!!


        Re: My Grandmother’s Lemonade

        IT sounds delish but I am with you Tam on the sugar. I'm sure it's necessary for almost 5 gallons of sweet lemonade but imagining 7 pounds of sugar...... lol

            Here is my recipe, it only makes a quart, which may be more practical if you aren't serving a crowd.

            1/2 cup lemon juice (I often cheat and use RealLemon juice)
            3 T sugar

            Combine in a quart container and fill with water. Refrigerate. When you are ready to serve, pour

            in your glass and fill with lemonade. About 1 Points Plus for the sugar.
